Senator Buruji Kashamu has dismissed a statement credited to Dayo Adeyeye, the spokesman of the Ahmed Makarfi faction, threatening to sanction him and other members on Ali Modu Sheriff’s side.

The Senator, who was suspended recently by the Ogun state chapter of the PDP, said such action will fail.

Kashamu also said he is not afraid of any sanction because he knows he is fighting for the rights of the people.

According to Punch, he said “No one should mistake the pronouncements of the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court over the Ondo State PDP governorship ticket as their judgments on the party’s national leadership crisis.”

Kashamu said ”No one is afraid of any sanction so long as we know that we are fighting to protect the interest of our people.

“A political party is a congregation of people with a common goal yet with various interests. In every political setting, people align and realign with the bloc or group where they feel their interest is better protected and guaranteed.

“If your bloc or group wins, it does not mean you should seek to emasculate the other because you never can tell what would happen tomorrow.

“I wish to advise that no one should mistake the verdicts of the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court over the Ondo State PDP governorship ticket as their pronouncements on the national leadership crisis.

“They are two separate issues that I hope we can still resolve amicably. Anyone talking of sanctioning any member of the party for fighting to protect his interest does not wish the party well.

“Is anyone saying that if tomorrow the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court rule in favour of any of the national leaders, he should send all those in support of the other out of the party when all the 36 states are polarised along the lines of Senators Sheriff and Makarfi? No. That is not the spirit of party politics and participatory democracy.”

Senator Kashamu also blamed Governor Olusegun Mimiko for PDP’s failure in the recently concluded Ondo governorship election.
